FANS have been buzzing about the eye patch that Kelly Clarkson has been sporting on The Voice and The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Kelly was looking like a pirate on her talk show in September of 2020, and later on the singing talent show.
Was Kelly wearing on eye patch on The Voice?
Clarkson was seen wearing an eye patch on The Voice in early November – but only for pre-recorded segments.
“Instead of Coach Kelly for the battle rounds… y’all get Captain Kelly,” Clarkson tweeted on November 9, along with a video of her wearing the patch.
The Voice airs on NBC on Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.
Why is Kelly Clarkson wearing an eye patch?
Clarkson explained why she has gone with the pirate look at times in recent months.
“Something got in my eye and it got a little infected, so I have to wear an eye patch,” she explained on Twitter.
She recalled to NBC in Los Angeles: “We did this long shoot for The Voice and I was up in this window. These buildings out here on the Universal lot are all dusty and I’m highly allergic to dust.
“Well, something had gotten in my eye… and maybe cut it, did something.”
“It got infected… When it first happened it was so puffy. I was like, ‘What am I supposed to do?'”
What did Clarkson say about the eye patch?
Kelly addressed the fact that she was wearing an eye patch in a teaser for The Kelly Clarkson Show.
She admitted: “Yes, I am in an eye patch. How much more Kelly can it get?”
In another clip from the promo, she sat with actor Dennis Quaid, telling him: “usually I don’t look like a pirate.”
He said: “you’re the most beautiful pirate I’ve ever seen.”
She replied: “good answer.”
Despite her jokes about her appearance, concerned fans took to the comment section to speculate.
One fan commented: “why is she wearing a patch? I hope her eye is alright.”
Another added: “I love Kelly. I wonder what’s wrong with her eye.”
Others wondered: “What happened to Kelly’s eye.”
She has been seen making appearances on NBC’s Sunday Today and the Today show eye patch-free, so it seems that the Because Of You singer has fully recovered from the infection.
Fans were particularly concerned because Kelly has already had a tough few months, having filed for divorce from ex Brandon Blackstock.
The singer spoke about the split on Sunday Today with Willie Geist saying: “I mean, it’s no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster.
“Personally, it’s been a little hard the last couple months. I’ve been talking to friends that have been through divorce.
“I don’t know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved.”
When did The Kelly Clarkson Show Season 2 debut?
The Emmy-award winning show returned with its regular Kelly-oke segments, games and celeb interviews.
The new season of The Kelly Clarkson Show launched on September 21.
The show’s production was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, but has a mix of live and virtual interviews.
